On another message board that I follow, there is what I consider to be an epic thread for people to post neat pictures.  I thought I'd cross-post some of that thread here to see if we can get it going with this group.  There's no rules, really, just pictures you find fascinating for whatever reason.

Those wacky Germans.

 

A Monochromatic Farewell to a Condemned House in Germany

 

by Christopher Jobson on September 30, 2013

 

 

HausSchwarzM%C3%B6hringenGermany.jpg?ito

 

Haus in Schwarz (House in Black) was a 2008 public art piece by artists Erik Sturm und Simon Jung (previously) in the city center of Möhringen, Germany. The piece was meant as a farewell to the building which was slated for demolition, with the matte black paint acting as a sort of final curtain to an exterior that had recently been used by numerous street artists, shown [below]. Does anyone know what occupies the space today?

 

UPDATE: After demolition, the owner, art gallery manager Karin Abt-Straubinger built a new gallery (but the House in Black still haunts Google Maps). Thanks Gerhard.
